If you want a home in the Louisville area, a short sale might be the right way for you to go.  A short sale refers to a property sale that provides the lender with less money than currently owed by the borrower.  It’s an agreement between the seller (borrower) and his/her lender that can prevent the home from going to foreclosure.Louisville Short Sales

A short sale can provide you with a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a home at a bargain price.  This might mean more square footage, a better location or higher quality construction than you might otherwise find.  There are some distinct advantages of a short sale over foreclosure too.

Short sale homes are often in better condition than foreclosures because the previous owner sought to sell before they defaulted. That often means they have done a better job maintaining their home until they listed the property too.

How can you ensure that the short sale property that interests you is in good condition? Make a successful home inspection by a reputable firm part of your offer on the home.  Be aware that the lender may be in too much of a hurry for this, but the purchase price will often be low enough to make your risk worthwhile.

If you want to purchase a home in this favorable market, a short sale may well get you much more house for your money. Know the risks. See professional advice and you may well be in your dream home before you know it.
